After facing an uncertain future heading into their annual general meeting (AGM) earlier this month, the Tumbler Ridge Youth Soccer Association (TRYSA) is on track for the summer.
The first soccer practice took place at Tumbler Ridge Elementary on Wednesday (April 25), about three weeks after the AGM, where 15 people came out and volunteered to fill various coaching and board positions.
Without a strong show of support at that meeting, there would be no youth soccer this summer, explained TRYSA spokesperson Jan Proulx.
There are now 120 kids signed up, and a tournament scheduled to take place in Tumbler Ridge on May 26. That weekend will also involve a cystic fibrosis fund raising walk, which should fit well with the tournament, said Proulx.
